Showdown in Court over Obama's Healthcare Overhaul

Hosted by

The Obama healthcare reform requires that all Americans have health insurance and even offers subsidies to those too poor to buy their own policies. Twenty state attorneys general have filed suit claiming that's unconstitutional, and the case begins tomorrow in Florida. The attack on what conservatives call "ObamaCare" was at first considered unlikely to pass judicial muster. But judges are sensitive to politics, and that could make a difference, according to David Savage, who covers the federal courts for the Los Angeles Times.
